The Gun Merchants: Politics and Policies of the Major Arms Suppliers focuses on the political and policy considerations in arms transfers, taking into consideration the positions of different arms-exporting countries on the control of conventional arms trade. The book first offers information on the trends in 20th-century arms transfers, including history of arms transfers, sophistication of arms, and transfer modes of arms. The text also underscores the position and influence of Jimmy Carter and the United States on the restraint of arms trade. The manuscript examines Soviet arms policy towards Africa, including the context of Soviet policy, factors influencing Soviet behavior, and the future of Soviet policy in Africa. The increase in the volume of arms sold in Africa is highlighted. The book also takes a look at domestic and international considerations of British arms sales; the policies of the Federal Republic of Germany and France on arms transfers; and evaluation of arms transfer control proposals. The publication is a dependable reference for readers interested in exploring the international policies and procedures in arms trade.
